Coagulation

Acne

Skin imperfections

With coagulation, small, benign abnormalities on the skin surface are burned away. The skin therapist uses a heat electrode to 'burn' the blemish, after which the skin dies and the wound heals quickly.

Coagulation is successfully applied in:

  • Warts

  • Fibromas, also called skin warts

  • Small bumps on the skin, such as moles and keratinized bumps

  • Pigment spots

  • Other superficial skin conditions

The treatment

During the treatment, the skin therapist touches the bump with a heated electrode  . The burned tissue dies and healthy skin takes its place.

Result and side effects

Immediately after the treatment, the treated area turns black. A few days later, a scab appears on the skin. It is important that you do not scratch the scab and that the scab remains dry for a good wound healing. New, healthy skin appears under the scab, which is still light (pink) in color at first. Over time, the skin changes color.

Aftercare

The treated skin is vulnerable after the treatment. This means that you have to be extra careful during the first 48 hours after treatment. Avoid the tanning bed and sauna and do not take a hot shower or hot bath. Use a sunscreen with a high SPF factor for the first four weeks.
